ILWF DRESS* // ASOS BAG // ADIDAS STAN SMITH'S
Sometimes there's nothing better than throwing on a simple, great fitting dress that says all it needs to say with minimal fuss, minimal layers, and best of all minimal bits and pieces to tuck in and smooth flat in an attempt to avoid that irritating VTL*. This ILWF number is one of those dresses - the bardot/skater shape is uber flattering, and the bright print makes enough of a statement for any additional debris to be totally unnecessary. Except, of course, this amazing pineapple bag which I recently nabbed off of ASOS. Those lemon slice clutch bags (see here and here) seem to be everywhere at the moment, but for me this is just a more practical alternative. Clutch bags are great, but who can be bothered with clutching? This little thing fits all the essentials, hangs happily across your body (hands free) and makes every outfit that little bit more fun. I just know it's going to be my saving grace on holiday! 

*Otherwise known as a visible top/tuck line. This may or may not be a thing. If not, it should be.
